>>We also have a duty to be careful with how we represent our efforts and the families that we assist. For one, we do not have a right to slander people with abuse until after they have had their day in court.

Tsk. If you're going to start hollering about slander, then you really need to have a better understanding of what the term "slander" MEANS first.

"Slander" or "libel" apply to accusations of specific actions, not opinions -- and they must be made against specific people. If I say "SgtStinky has beaten his dog to death", and you are innocent, that is slander. If I say "SgtStinky is an idjit", that is simply an insult. You can't take me to court for calling you names, as long as I have not accused you of specific actions that you have not actually committed -- and you can't take me to court for insulting a group of people, either.

>>I know Doc knows this, he is a smart guy, he is just caught up trying stay up on the postings.

I am not ANY kind of "guy", sorry.

>>The reward is getting to know the people you serve

Once again -- I don't serve "the people". I'm in rescue to serve the ANIMALS.

Even Ed (natsamjosh) agrees with me on my general opinion of many human beings. As he said (I'm paraphrasing 'cause I don't want to go look up the exact quote) -- serpents are great, people suck.
